XtremepowerUS Self Balancing Scooter

XtremepowerUS Self Balancing Scooter

Budget scooters are available in all sorts of shapes and sizes these days. But in most instances, handing over a smaller price means compromising in a couple of key areas at least.

VEEKO LH-C Self Balancing Scooter

VEEKO LH-C Self Balancing Scooter

There was a time when spending around $200 on a self-balancing scooter meant settling for a piece of garbage. Perhaps even one of the downright dangerous devices shipped in from overseas that were linked with all manner of accidents. In short, you were better-off not bothering at all.

MegaWheels Self Balancing Scooter

MegaWheels Self Balancing Scooter

It’s a point I’ve raised on many occasions before and will continue to do so indefinitely. That being, if you’re going to hand over $200 or less for a hoverboard or self-balancing scooter, you’re usually going to have to compromise in one area or the other.

So the question is – what’s the story with the ? If you’ve ...
